GCSE Functional Skills – Gangster
About the work
GCSE and Functional Skills students were asked in their lesson to think about the impact that gangsters had not only on history but also television, films and games. Students explored topics such as the prohibition era and the life of Al Capone.
Students then were asked to look at an extract from a piece of gangster fiction, before generating their own characters using the Mob Museum website.
Learners finally utilised the knowledge that they gained in this lesson to create their own short story based on gangsters.
